German rock festival abandoned after possible terrorist threat

Acilia Dean | 11 Giugno, 2017, 07:06

The open-air festival, Rock am Ring, was halted on its opening night on Friday after police said there was a concrete terrorist threat.

In total, an estimated 90,000 people were expected to attend the annual three-day festival outside the western town of Nuerburg.

The German band Rammstein was the Friday night headliner, but had not yet started playing.

Having earlier declared their confidence that they will get the go-ahead from the authorities to continue, the organisers were able to confirm this morning that the show can resume.

In a tweet, police in the nearby city of Koblenz wrote: "We are happy along with you".


"All visitors are requested to leave the festival site in a controlled and quiet manner and make for the exits and camping sites".

"All visitors will be kept informed about any developments on all Rock am Ring Social Media channels, radio and the speakers".

Security for the festival had already been stepped up, with an additional 1,200 staff, in response to the May 22 Manchester bombing which occurred after a concert by U.S. singer Ariana Grande.

The incident comes less than a fortnight after a terrorist killed 22 people at a concert in Manchester.
